  • Introduction

    An English Garden Bed & Breakfast front

    Welcome to An English Garden Bed & Breakfast where you will delight in a storybook setting reminiscent of the old seaside cottages of England and Old Cape Cod.

    An English Garden B&B, built in 1922 and lovingly renovated in 1999, retains all the charm and lure of a bygone era.

    An English Garden, formerly known as The Loydon Inn and the Innisfree, is the oldest B&B's in Dennisport. There are eight guest bedrooms (four of which have ocean views), a parlour, a reading room and a sunny breakfast room with individual tables that face the ocean. Each bedroom has a private bath (some with whirlpool), queen size bed with Simmons Beautyrest mattresses, heat and air-conditioning, color cable TV and a balcony or deck.

    An English Garden B&B is approximately 150 yards from a sandy beach where in summer the warm waters of Nantucket Sound average 72 degrees.

    Enjoy our English Roses, hydrangea, and delphiniums that surround the shingled cottage and cascade over the white picket fence: an oasis of blooms amidst the salt sea air.
